Keith Bisaillon, band director, Harrison High School, Harrison School District 2 Bisaillon may not teach a subject that's tested by PARCC, but that doesn't mean he's not affected by standardized tests. Harrison has actually designed four tests for Bisaillon's students: three written exams and a performance test. At first, Bisaillon says, he was terrified of the tests, which band directors in similar positions don't have to undergo. But he says he's been pleased by the feedback it gives him, and by the fact that the district is very open to him making suggestions about what should be on the test. Interestingly, he says the PARCC test does impact him - and not in a good way. He loses a total of four weeks of classroom time to the PARCC, and even more to other tests, like Advanced Placement tests. And most of that comes at a time when he's trying to prepare his kids for major performances and competitions. That's particularly challenging for a band class, he points out, because to succeed, bands need to practice together. "In a class like mine if I have five students that are missing that negatively affects every single student in that classroom," he says.
